Hi! Greetings and salutations from across the Pond. My name is Pat and I'm writting this from Sheffield, Yorkshire, England. The reason for my intrusion on your forum is to attempt to contact an old pen pal of my mother's. I don't know if she is still alive let alone still living in Allentown PA !!.....My Mother's name was, at the time she was last in touch with her pen pal, Jean Woodhead and she was around 15 years old...she is now 80 this November!!! So that would make it around 1943/44 when they lost touch during the dark days of the second world war.
The young girl she was writting to was about the same age ( born around 1928) and her name was Marge Emery and she lived at 281, East Fairview Street, Allentown PA. There were no post codes in those days but according to Google maps the Postal code today is 18109. My mum often wonders what became of her wartime pen pal and would dearly like to get in touch again. I realise that posting this message is like clutching at straws, but if anyone knows ANYTHING about Marge Emery, please get in touch with me via this forum. Thanks for taking the time to read this post. best regards, Patrick.
